I liked the movie as well. Ditto Lord of The Rings.  However, as a rule,
neither are my cups of tea. My tastes and interests run more to the likes
of: Dickens, Irving, Roth, Salinger, Dickinson, Potok, Wolfe. I thought
Judith Freeman's (my first of her) was well crafted.

I love Dickens, but find Salinger more depressing than any other author I've ever read. And being a moderate to severe manic depressive myself, I don't care for him on that account. I don't forgive authors who depress me. I read WE THE LIVING by Ayn Rand a number of years ago, and I have steadfastly refused to read anything else by her. My depressions don't need any help.

Tell me, if I were to read a book by Roth, which one should I try first, something that would make me feel good about being alive?
